Making the Most of Your Utility Closet
Sometimes it's nice to get out of New Jersey and see other parts of the country or the world. While you're away, you may collect a few souvenirs and want to bring them home to show everyone where you've been. Unfortunately, some souvenirs get tossed to the side and become useless clutter. Access Self Storage has some tips to help you store and show off your souvenirs when you return home to Plainfield, NJ.
Tips for Organizing Your Utility Closet
Know which items to store in the closet.
Utility closets vary in size. Some provide space for a washer and a dryer; others only have a few shelves for storing towels and other miscellaneous items. Use your utility closet for things like brooms, mops, cleaning supplies, and other maintenance items in your home.
Use all of the available space.
Think outside the box when it comes to storing items in your utility closet. You’re not stuck with using a few shelves or the open floor space. Hang a rack on the back of the door for extra storage space, and bring in smaller storage units or cubbies for keeping detergents, window cleaners, and other items organized and out of the way. You can also invest in an organizing rack to place inside the closet and to create more floor-to-ceiling storage space.
Make it a functional space, not a junk room.
A utility closet should be a functional space. However, many people use the closet for storing junk and unused clutter. Things should be organized neatly on shelves, not thrown in haphazardly. It isn’t a place to keep Christmas decorations or other items that you don’t use daily. If you find yourself using the closet for storing anything and everything, it’s time to start thinking about reducing the clutter in your home and using outside storage options.
